World's Largest Book: 5x7 feet

Source: 2spare

Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom checks in at more than 5 x 7 feet and weighs 133 pounds. Certified by Guinness World Records as the largest published book in the world, it features 112 pages of spectacular images and showcases a variety of digital, photographic and printing techniques. Each copy is printed only on demand, and uses a roll of paper longer than a football field, more than a gallon of ink and 24 hours' printing time.

The book's creator, Michael Hawley of MIT, squeezed the maximum image quality out of his professional-grade cameras and on-demand-printing equipment, challenged a bindery to make the big book and established that digital images are every bit as good if not better than traditional film photographs. It is currently for sale on Amazon at $30,000.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually
something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely
broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
